Hospice Care

Hospice is a special healthcare option for patients and families who are faced with a terminal illness and a life expectancy of 6 months or less.  South Coast Hospice provides palliative (comfort) care when curative treatment is no longer the patient’s choice.  Care takes place in the patient’s home or residence in all settings and serves patients of all ages.  South Coast Hospice views the patient, family, and disease process from a holistic perspective addressing the physical, emotional, practical, and spiritual needs of each patient and family.  Our belief is that quality of life is as important as the length of life.

South Coast Hospice helps patients live life, one day at a time, instilling hope for the most out of every day.  We are here to help make your life more meaningful and to promote enjoyment of the people and things you have always loved.
